Are you passionate about connecting people with the environment? Do you have hands on experience designing and delivering citizen science based education programmes that engage and inspire communities? If so we invite you to learn more about our Citizen Science Coordinator role at Community Waitakere; a community based organisation committed to a vision of thriving connected and sustainable West Auckland Communities.

You will work across a range of environmental projects, providing citizen science monitoring components that both engage and inspire participants. Many projects have a water quality component, so a knowledge of fresh water ecology and associated monitoring techniques would be preferred.

This role is a unique opportunity for an inspiring and engaging individual to embed themselves within West Auckland communities and share their passion for people and the environment. This role will support the development of new environmental initiatives, issues, local species, local people and local places interwoven with Mātauranga Māori.

Through these activities you will actively promote the work to the wider community, and support new initiatives that develop along the way. You will be part of a team who are passionate about working with people, and an organisation with a strong reputation for high quality work.

A relevant tertiary qualification is required (teaching, environmental sciences). You will have a sound understanding of the bi-cultural foundation of Aotearoa and the ability to work in an inclusive, collaborative way which honours Te Tiriti o Waitangi.
